Up to a million Britons face new driving text if there’s no-deal – UK Daily Mail

TThe Department of Transport (DfT) published two documents outlining the bureaucracy facing drivers planning holidays or living abroad if Theresa May’s Brexit deal is rejected this evening.

The DfT said if no agreement is reached with Brussels, anyone with a UK driving licence may need to purchase an International Driving Permit (IDP) for £5.50 from the Post Office if they want to drive within in the EU after March 29.

But it warned a no-deal Brexit could pose a much bigger headache for many of the 1.3million Britons living within the EU. They will not be able to apply for an IDP.

Instead they will have to exchange their British licence for a local one before the UK leaves the EU if they want to be able to continue driving there.

The DfT warned that ‘increased demand may lead to longer processing times and delays to exchanging driving licences the closer it is to March 29, 2019’.
